Protein is an essential nutrient for the human body. People who are malnourished should eat more protein-rich foods. Bean food is a plant food. But the essential amino acids in protein are close to animal protein in quantity and proportion.
The protein content of bean food is 35-40, among which soybean protein is the best plant quality protein. While protein content is abundant, the cholesterol content of bean food is far lower than fish, meat, egg, milk. So often eat bean food, can not only improve the nutritional supply of the diet, but also avoid the adverse effects of eating too much meat. Not only that, soybean also contains rich calcium, phosphorus, iron and B vitamins. Linoleic acid is also rich in linoleic acid and phospholipid. Linoleic acid is a good food for preventing hypertension, coronary heart disease, arteriosclerosis and so on.
The protein in beans is plant protein, but under normal circumstances, protein is metabolized by human body, most of which will be turned into nitrogen-containing waste, which can be excreted by kidney. If legumes are eaten too often. This can lead to high levels of phytoprotein, resulting in an increase in nitrogen-containing waste, thus increasing the metabolic burden on the kidneys.
Elderly people with reduced renal waste excretion capacity have high blood lipids, high blood pressure and high blood sugar. If they eat too much high-protein food, it is likely to have adverse effects on the kidney and lead to the decline of renal function. Excessive intake of protein may lead to the acceleration of kidney disease, and even lead to renal failure. Therefore, people with poor renal function should limit their intake of protein.
But "restriction" does not mean "fasting." doctors also stress that protein intake should be strictly restricted only if kidney function drops to a certain level. Recent studies have also found that soybeans are rich in branched amino acids. There is no harm to kidney disease. Experts believe that eating soy products twice a week is enough for healthy people.
In general, beans are very rich in nutrition and low in fat, so they are good health foods. Besides all kinds of beans, there are many kinds of bean products, so we should be on guard against excessive use of beans. Especially patients with kidney disease.
